The Angry Birds Movie is an upcoming 2016 American 3D CGI-animated action-adventure comedy movie adaptation on the Angry Birds series of video games and is scheduled for release in theaters in 3D & REAL D 3D May 20th, 2016. John Cohen will be the producer while David Maisel will be the executive producer.[1][2][3] The film will be presented by Columbia Pictures and Rovio Animation, in association with LStar Capital, animated at Sony Pictures Imageworks, Vancouver, BC, and financed by Rovio Entertainment.


The movie takes place on Bird Island, an untouched paradise inhabited by birds who are naive and innocent, who know nothing of the outside world. They treasure eggs above all else, and are all carefree and easygoing, except for few.

One of these birds is Red, a societal outcast who has had anger issues from the very beginning. Eventually, his outbursts become too much and he is sentenced to anger management courses, where he meets other misfit birds with similar problems.

The birds are suddenly visited by green pigs, who are dumb but funny. The birds and pigs quickly befriend each other, but Red does not trust the pigs at all. Ultimately, the pigs reveal their true colors, and leads to Red leading the entire flock in a "maddening" frenzy of rightful revenge as well as finding the right means of dealing with rage.




On May 15, 2013, it was announced that the film will be released on July 1, 2016, and will be distributed by Sony Pictures Entertainment.[4][5][6]

The film was scheduled to be released on July 1, 2016, but in December 2014, it was moved up to May 20, 2016.

On May 20, 2015, it was announced that Jon Vitti will write the screenplay for the film, while Catherine Winder is also joining as a producer.[7]

On October 9, 2015, it was announced that Clay Kaytis & Fergal Reilly will be the directors.[8]


The original score has been composed by Heitor Perira (Minions), and will feature new songs from Blake Shelton, Demi Lovato, Charli XCX, Steve Aoki, and more. For the official soundtrack, see The Angry Birds Movie (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).

  • When the birds are launched from the slingshot, they tuck their legs under their wings, which gives their appearances a spot-on match to their game counterparts.
  • It appears the direct source of Red's anger and solitude was back in his early childhood:
    He was always made fun of because of his abnormally large eyebrows, giving him the nickname "Eye Brow" (from the official trailer).
  • In the games, Matilda drops explosive eggs while flying; but in this movie, she expels egg-shaped fireballs that explode on impact.
  • This marks the first appearance of Leonard AKA King Mudbeard.
  • All the birds except Bomb and Hal have their Toons designs, also Bomb is shown to have a tail in the movie.
